I'm not sure about your problem as you're working on the right area to
fix it, but that ticked icon just indicates that it's a boolean *type*
of option, not that it's been enabled.  You'll see the same for other
boolean options (that tickbox icon).

Other options where you type in strings of characters have a "letter a"
in the icon, and ones where you can put in a list of things have a
"series of bullet points" icon.

There might be another setting that says "~/Desktop/" is the particular
directory to be used, but I don't find it quickly searching now.

[tim at bigblack ~]$ uname -ipr i686 i386

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
